Name this thing-a-me-bob
Does anyone recognise this?
A friend gave this to me some time ago with a smile on her face like she was presenting me with some great treasure.
And then she did what I was really hoping that she wouldn't do - she asked me if I knew what it was...
Now, when she handed it to me, I was thinking was, 'why on earth has she given me the rusted out lid of a really old teapot?'
Glad I didn't say that.
Apparently she found it at a local market and she knows it has something to do with needlecraft of some sort.
And, if you twiddle the knob - look what happens!
These spoky things pop out.
I am sure that it is really useful.
Can anyone enlighten me as to why?
